Connecticut Ecommerce Website Design Professionals

Our ecommerce web developers have more than 18 years of experience building custom websites for Connecticut-area businesses.

Developing an effective ecommerce website in Connecticut starts with understanding the nature of your e-commerce business. The things we talk about with you are things like how you've run an ecommerce business in Connecticut, what platforms you've used, how your customers interact with your brand, what features you need, and how you handle orders.

Knowing this lets us make informed recommendations about the best e-commerce platform for your Connecticut-based business. If you're creating a new Connecticut ecommerce website or redesigning an old one, you have to pick the right platform for your needs.

It is important to begin Connecticut ecommerce web design projects with an understanding of the business goals. We'll help you decide what metrics to use to measure the success of your Connecticut online store, whether you use our ecommerce website design firm or a different web developer. This will help set expectations throughout the scope of the Connecticut ecommerce website development to ensure you receive the best website for your storefront.

After your Connecticut ecommerce web design service is complete, we'll even be available to offer Connecticut digital marketing and website support services!

Benefits of a Custom Connecticut Ecommerce Website Solution

Our agency was founded on providing custom web solutions throughout Connecticut and the United States. We have a strong history of working with local clients to understand their ecommerce business and deliver a custom Connecticut-area website unique to their online brand. As an e-commerce developer, we've worked on a lot of custom projects, like:

  • Headless ecommerce websites within Magento, Shopify, or BigCommerce using tools like Nuxt.js or Laravel to bring together the CMS and ecommerce platform.
  • Enhancing BigCommerce and Shopify's product entry with Product Information Management systems.
  • Omnichannel ecommerce solutions to synchronize inventory, list products, and fulfill orders across multiple platforms.
  • Integrations with Amazon and eBay for third-party channels.
  • Mobile app development to increase online shopping capabilities for B2B storefronts.
  • Data management solutions to migrate data between platforms, import product data from suppliers, or export sales data to third party systems.

When it comes to developing custom functionality for your Connecticut e-commerce website, you'll be in good hands with our team. We'd like to work with you and your Connecticut team to understand your functionality requirements, outline the deliverables and turnaround time, and help you with everything after the launch.

Our ecommerce web design agency is happy to provide Bridgeport, Bristol, Fairfield, Greenwich, Hartford, Manchester, Milford, New Haven, Norwalk, and Stamford with professional ecommerce development services.

The Best Ecommerce Platform for Your Connecticut Website

In order to recommend the best ecommerce platform for your Connecticut business, we'll need to know what your goals are. There is no single e-commerce platform that is perfect for all Connecticut-area websites.

For WooCommerce, Shopify and BigCommerce projects, we have separate development teams. We can provide expert advice and service because our local ecommerce web developers specialize in their own preferred ecommerce platforms.

Connecticut WooCommerce Web Development Services

WordPress is the most popular content management system for Connecticut websites. When you run an ecommerce website with WordPress, you'll probably need a WooCommerce web developer in Connecticut.

Our WooCommerce web development team has experience helping startups and existing e-commerce businesses in Connecticut get started with WooCommerce.

Here are some of the reasons our ecommerce website designers tend to recommend WooCommerce:

  • We recommend WordPress and WooCommerce for Connecticut web design projects that require a custom designed theme, but are working on a limited budget. We have our own custom WooCommerce theme that is based on Understrap and makes a great starting point for Connecticut WooCommerce websites. Theme development for Connecticut e-commerce clients is usually more expensive on Shopify and BigCommerce.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for Connecticut businesses with an existing WordPress website. It doesn't make sense to spend a lot of time and money redesigning your content-based website just to add ecommerce.
  • The web companies in Connecticut who prefer open-source software use WooCommerce. You don't have to pay a monthly fee for WordPress or WooCommerce, just for web hosting. Alternatively, Shopify and BigCommerce have high monthly fees to use the platform and their apps are often much more expensive than WordPress or WooCommerce plugins.
  • Most Connecticut businesses that want a product builder should consider WooCommerce. It is simply easier to develop a custom product builder in WordPress than most other platforms. However, there are apps for Connecticut web companies using BigCommerce or Shopify that offer basic configurator functionality.
  • We recommend WooCommerce for those in an industry not accepted by Shopify or BigCommerce.

Connecticut Shopify Web Development Services

Shopify is the most popular hosted e-commerce platform. To run an e-commerce website using Shopify you will likely be looking for a Shopify website developer in Connecticut.

A lot of our Shopify developers have experience designing websites for new and existing businesses in Connecticut.

Here are some reasons our ecommerce website designers like Shopify:

  • For Connecticut merchants interested in a hosted ecommerce system, we recommend Shopify. Shopify allows you to run an ecommerce business in Connecticut without the hassle of constantly updating plugins or software versions.
  • When Connecticut web companies don't need a lot of custom functionality, we recommend Shopify. It is often more expensive to develop custom functionality within Shopify than WordPress. Additionally, Shopify apps often have monthly fees versus WooCommerce plugins that are more affordable.
  • We recommend Shopify for Connecticut e-commerce businesses that rely heavily on fast turnaround times for development and marketing initiatives. For testing out a new product, it's usually faster to set up a Shopify website and go through various apps and design ideas to test conversion rate optimization.

Connecticut BigCommerce Website Design Services

BigCommerce is arguably the most flexible web-based ecommerce platform available in Connecticut due to its robust API functionality. To build a successful BigCommerce website you will need to search for an experienced BigCommerce website designer in Connecticut.

We've helped startups and existing e-commerce businesses in the Connecticut area build out and improve their online stores.

Our e-commerce web developers recommend BigCommerce for a few reasons:

  • We recommend BigCommerce for online companies in Connecticut interested in a hosted ecommerce platform. An advantage of a hosted e-commerce platform is you don't have to worry about updating it like you do with WordPress and WooCommerce.
  • We recommend BigCommerce for extensive content-based websites that don't support ecommerce. We can implement "headless e-commerce" for your Connecticut storefront, which is the process of integrating a platform like BigCommerce through APIs and custom web programming.
  • We recommend BigCommerce because of their robust API, which is exceptionally helpful for building out custom functionality in Connecticut ecommerce websites.
  • Our recommendation for Connecticut merchants who don't like Shopify but want a hosted ecommerce platform is BigCommerce.

Redesigning Existing Ecommerce Websites

It might be time to rethink your Connecticut ecommerce website if you're not happy with its performance, functionality, or conversion rate.

You should approach Connecticut e-commerce redesign projects with exceptional care. It's possible to lose search rankings and online sales if your website developer forgets to create 301 redirects, completely restructures your URLs, or improperly reorganizes your product catalog.

We like to know your whole business before we start an e-commerce website redesign in Connecticut. You should consider these factors when redesigning Connecticut ecommerce sites:

  • How do people reach your Connecticut e-commerce website? If your online sales come mostly from organic search traffic, you'll need to maintain URL structures and use 301 redirects. It is also advisable to maintain the same product categories, breadcrumb trails, and page content throughout the development of your Connecticut website.
  • What do customers think of your Connecticut website? If your online shoppers aren't happy with the design of the website then it is okay to make big changes. It's advisable to be cautious with design changes if you've already got good conversion rates.
  • Do you plan to migrate your e-commerce platform? If so, understand the new Connecticut website will function differently than your previous website. Things like entering products, fulfilling orders, updating customer info, and going through check out will be different.

Determine Goals for Your Connecticut Ecommerce Web Design Service

Building an ecommerce website in Connecticut can be expensive. Before hiring a local ecommerce web designer, you should put together a list of goals you'd like to see achieved through the Connecticut ecommerce development service. Keeping track of measurable goals will help you keep your e-commerce site progressing in the right direction. We've seen these goals for Connecticut ecommerce website design projects:

  • Create a new e-commerce site for your Connecticut-based company.
  • To migrate an legacy Connecticut ecommerce systems into a new platform to improve functionality or website security.
  • Redesigning an e-commerce site in order to improve user experience (UX), reduce bounce rates, and improve conversion rates.
  • To improve the speed and responsiveness of the shopping experience.
  • To fix web accessibility issues for ADA and WCAG compliance.

We've provided such Connecticut ecommerce web development solutions before and are excited by the prospect of helping with your new ecommerce website design! We can help you put together a list of goals for your Connecticut e-commerce website if you need it!

Questions to Ask Your Connecticut Ecommerce Web Designer

You should ask your Connecticut ecommerce website development agency a lot of questions. While the answer will be valuable, even more important to you should be the manner in which the answer is given. Check to see how receptive the sales team is to detailed questions. You'll get a good idea for how things will be when the Connecticut ecommerce website design service starts up. We get asked these ecommerce development questions a lot by Connecticut e-commerce businesses:

  • Do you outsource ecommerce web development services? At WebCitz, we don't outsource ecommerce website development services because we have our own team of Shopify, BigCommerce, and WooCommerce developers.
  • Do you create 301 redirects if the URLs are going to change? WebCitz tries to keep the URL structure the same, but this is often not possible during platform migrations. We do create 301 redirects for Connecticut ecommerce web designs that will have a different URL structure.
  • When you start an ecommerce website design project, do you make design mockups? For Connecticut WooCommerce development, WebCitz creates design mockups. But for Shopify and BigCommerce, we only create design mockups if the budget is high enough for a fully custom Connecticut ecommerce development.
  • Do you help Connecticut business owners select the platform for their e-commerce website? WebCitz helps Connecticut clients choose the right ecommerce platform. Generally, the answer depends on your web design and e-commerce needs.
  • Can you tell me how fast Connecticut ecommerce web development works? WebCitz typically completes most Connecticut-area ecommerce website development projects within 3-4 months, but they can take up to 9-12 months for highly complex e-commerce websites.
  • Have you seen your Connecticut ecommerce web designer's past work or recent reviews? WebCitz has an ecommerce website design portfolio, numerous ecommerce case studies, and dozens of client reviews to share!

How We Design the Best Connecticut Ecommerce Websites

If you want a new e-commerce website, you should expect Connecticut ecommerce development agencies to have a formal process for how they do it. Here is our process for designing Connecticut ecommerce websites:

Discovery Phone Calls

In a discovery call, we learn about your Connecticut company, your ecommerce history, your development expectations, and your future plans. By having everyone involved in the ecommerce project speak up, you'll minimize confusion and project delays.

Kickoff Meeting

If you're happy with our ecommerce website development firm for your Connecticut website development, just sign the proposal, pay a down payment, and schedule your kickoff call! This will be an opportunity for everyone involved in the project to have discussions about how the project will unfold, who will be responsible for each phase of the design, and anticipated turnaround times for each element of the project.

Design Mockups or Template Selection

If your future Connecticut ecommerce website design is in WordPress with WooCommerce, or your design budget accommodates a custom design in Shopify or BigCommerce, then the first phase of the project will begin with mocking up the design of your website. This way, everyone is on the same page about how your site will look and feel before an e-commerce developer starts. If you've chosen a template-based approach within Shopify and BigCommerce, this is the phase where we start helping you pick a theme for your Connecticut ecommerce site.

Ecommerce Web Development

The longest part of your Connecticut ecommerce build will be the development. It includes data migration, theme customization, functionality development, and more! A password-protected development website lets you follow along.

Website Training & Launch

As soon as the ecommerce development project is finished, we'll provide you with any training you need. When you are comfortable managing the ecommerce website, we'll schedule a time that works for everyone involved to launch your future Connecticut e-commerce storefront! If interested, we can even share with you a checklist for the launch of the ecommerce site!

We've been working on our Connecticut ecommerce web development process for more than 18 years. We have incredible experience designing, developing, and launching successful e-commerce websites throughout the United States!

I was under a very stressful deadline and he was extremely considerate and helpful. He managed to fix the problems that I was experiencing with my website.
